There are many things that we greatly appreciate with the advancements of our time and yet, sometimes you want to enjoy a little slice of the days gone by. Well, the Burgess General Store at 710 West Main Street in the city of Pickens does just that and to quote their slogan, they are “bringing the past and present together”!
You feel welcomed as you walk through the doors and smell the coffee and baking supplies. Need a good cast iron pan? How about some grits or beans for cooking in that new cookware? Many of the items are from local vendors and producers. They also have a good supply of organic and natural choices.
But food items are not all they have – they have a fun and diverse selection of inventory! There are “Melissa & Doug” toys for children of all ages (or adults young at heart) and even rain boots for children (which are beyond adorable)! If you are passing through Pickens to go explore the beautiful Lake Keowee area or the Blue Ridge mountains, make sure you stop by this store for some essentials for the trail or campsite.
Interested in making your own soap or candles? Look no further for the supplies. But what about the how-to for some of these items? The Burgess General Store also offers classes on canning, soap making, etc.! Stop in the store for the complete list of classes offered.
So stop on by and take a stroll around the Burgess General Store or sit in the book-nook and enjoy a cup of coffee while browsing the books. For more information, click here.
